Two men were sentenced for the murder of Westchester Philharmonic violinist Mary Whitaker this week, according to multiple reports.

Jonathan Conklin will serve 25 years and his accomplice Charles Sanford 15 years in state prison for the August 2014 murder of Whitaker during an attempted robbery at her Western New York home.

Conklin and Sanford pleaded guilty to both federal and state charges in January.

Other federal charges included carjacking.
